New Order – Waiting For The Siren’s Call (2005)

New Order are the perfect pop band.

Already posted them on this blog here and here.

“Temptation” from early 1982 remains the best record ever made – a soundtrack to late adolescence and early adulthood – 8 minutes of perfection.

“Age of Consent” from later in 1982 never relents, “Ceremony” left over from Joy Division – cathartic and celebratory, “The Perfect Kiss” – one of the greatest music videos of all time and then “Blue Monday”, “The Village”, “As it was When it was”, “World in Motion” …… how good does it get?

They had their fallow periods but this track from 2005 returned to the motherlode. Hooky’s bass, the always trite lyrics, a tune to die for and washes of melancholia.

3:05 onwards nails pop perfection:

How many times must I lose my way …

How many words do I have to say ….

The original video and then an unbelievable live version from New York that proves that Peter Hook is the greatest bass player of all time – apart from Bernard Edwards of Chic.
